What a relief that you scheduled before they became tiered, what a hassle that would have been!

I'm such a fan of the Animation Class, I hope you enjoy it!

Great purchases and great idea with the Vinylmation! Can't wait to see it with all the signatures

And what a beautiful painting, that sounds so fun!

Argghhh I so wish I could take advantage of the Disneystore Free Shipping. They won't do it to Canada.

Ooh, that's a clever idea for the vinylmation.

Um painting with adult beverages? I could probably get into painting...if there were adult beverages involved! I am seriously the least artistic person ever. But it looks/sounds like it was a lot of fun!

I know I'm so happy I got in before tiering. I would have been so sad!

I can't wait for the animation class, hopefully my picture comes out halfway decent haha.

I'll definitely post a picture of him when he's all signed!

Aww such a bummer you can't get free shipping!

Hopefully it will work out, I'll post back!

I'm seriously not artistic at all but the instructor made it super easy! And the adult beverages definitely took some of the stress off of making it look perfect. You should definitely try it if you have something like it near you, it was fun and something different to do!

Day 6 Plans!

We are officially 2 weeks out!

I am SO excited and so in need of this vacation. Now onto the plans!


Day 6 Plans!


Finally getting to my beloved Animal Kingdom!



Today is our last day in Disney. My Mom and I have a 6pm flight scheduled so the plan is to hang out in AK til 3ish and then have my Dad drop us off at the airport. He’s going to be driving up to Gainsville to see my grandfather for a couple days before coming home.

The plan is to get all packed up and get everything in the car and still make opening at 9. Ambitious? Yes. Doable? I think so!

We love to do the Safari first thing so that’s first on our list!







The safari is seriously one of my favorite rides in all of Disney. I don’t know what it is about it but I just love it.

Then we’ll head over and see how many rides we can get on a certain mountain before it gets too busy.



My Mom will only ride once so my Dad and I probably won’t ride more than 2 or 3 times so she doesn’t have to wait too long for us.

After conquering Everest we will probably head over to Dinoland to do Dinosaur and Primevil Whirl.



I have a love hate relationship with Dinosaur, I love the idea and the pre-show but those dinos still scare me.

Sometime I’d like to meet Santa Goofy and Pluto but I’m not sure when they start meeting, we’ll have to play that by ear.

We’ll probably try to hit the Finding Nemo show before or after squeezing in our last Everest ride with FP+ between 11:05am-12:05pm for another ride!



We’ll probably grab some lunch sometime after our last Everest ride.
Sometime during the day I’d like to see the FOTLK and meet some of the characters left in Camp Minnie Mickey. It also may be the last year for the character trees if they don’t find a new place for them so I want to look them all over again.



I did book a FP+ to meet Minnie and Mickey in their Christmas garb 12:55-1:55.

During the afternoon I’d like to walk the animal trails and do whatever else catches our fancy.



I did book an afternoon Safari with FP+ 2-3pm. After 3 we’ll probably head out to the airport : (



Bye AK and Disney!

Leaving shouldn’t be as bad this trip because this will be my longest trip in awhile and I’ll be back on the 20th of February!

Must Do’s at AK;
• Ride Everest
• Safari
• Finding Nemo (my parent’s have never seen it!)


Christmas Must Do’s
• Meet Minnie and Mickey
• Meet Santa Goofy and Pluto
• Tour the Character Trees in Camp Minnie Mickey!

YAY 2 Weeks which means I'm the same... less 2 days!!!

I don't remember that picture of the giraffes from your TR (if it was in the TR), but HOLY COW, four in one shot!!!

I think Santa Goofy will start meeting at 11am. I plan to meet him here too as opposed to DHS since I hear the lines for him there are like 60-90 minutes. No thanks!

Sounds like a great finish to the trip. So cool to actually leave for home from a park. I imagine I will be sleeping in a bit that day (it's my MVMCP day) since I absolutely plan to be at MK until 1am the night before!!!

Can I hate you just a little for getting to go two days earlier than me

I think the giraffe shot was in my TR, maybe I forgot it. I love that picture, there were so many giraffes out that day. They are so pretty I loved it!

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I'm not willing to wait that long to see him over at DHS. I've heard his lines haven't been as bad at AK.

It should be a fun day to finish up. We'll probably be at MK pretty late the night before too, we'll just sleep when we get home! I'll be sitting on the plane super jealous of everyone at MVMCP that night!

3 Days to Go!

3 Days to Go!

Hey Guys!

I hope all my American readers had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I certainly had a great weekend!

Sorry for such a long time in between updates. Life has been crazy busy lately, in a good way, but Disney planning has been put on the back burner. But the day is almost here so its time to put it on the front burner again!
We are 3 days out!

We received a bit of a curve ball this weekend. My grandfather, Aunt and Uncle have decided that they want to come and meet us for dinner Saturday night (they live 2 hours away). I was originally supposed to visit their hometown for work this fall and see my Grandfather then but that didn’t end up happening so they decided to come visit us Saturday during our trip.
I’m a little bummed we will probably miss the MK nighttime entertainment that night but it will be good to spend some time with the family. So problem 1 is where to make a dinner reservation. We preferably want to eat at a resort that is easily accessible. My Grandfather has slowed down a lot so we need to be able to drop him near the restaurant. Any ideas? Not a ton is available but I was thinking Grand Floridian Café or Whispering Canyon Cafe. We were thinking non-buffet would be best. Thoughts??

I also need to figure out what to do with our FP+ reservations for that night. Hmmm decisions haha!

I also need to make some BOG lunch FP+ reservations this week. We were thinking Monday around 2ish after we finish HS in the morning.

Finally! I did get a chance to do a little packing this weekend.
The weather forecast looks surprisingly mild the entire time we are there so I’m excited to wear shorts!

Here are a few outfits I’ve put together so far, Disney dressing is so hard! I want to be comfy but look ok in pics lol.









AK day outfit!



I’ve used this bag every trip since 07!

I got my pin trading lanyard all ready with traders.



Everyone always asks what I do with my pins when I get home so here it is!



This is hanging on the wall in our office : )



I always try to get a resort pin



A pin commemorating a favorite activity of the trip




And finally the year and season!

I’m so excited and ready for this trip!

I hope to post another post before I go detailing my MVMCP outfit and our last minute dinner plans!

Stay tuned!

Sorry I can be no help on the restaurant advice, but I'm sure you will pick someplace nice! It always stinks to have plans changed, but it sounds like it will be for good reason!

I love all your outfits, especially the Peter Pan shirt!

And OMG absolutely love your pin display, that is SO awesome and cute!!

I think we are going to try the Big River Grille over at the Boardwalk. My uncle wants to go to the ESPN zone but I think its too loud. Big River seemed like a good compromise.

Thanks! I got the Peter Pan shirt at Hot Topic. He's one of my favorite characters but I can never find him on a shirt! They have way too much cute stuff to choose from at that store!

And thanks! It was super easy but I like being able to see them!

Hey Jess! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and have a FANTASTIC trip!! I had a good lunch at Grand Floridian on my last trip and breakfast has always been excellent there. I haven't ever tried Whispering Canyon, but I have heard great things about them!
